Description

Majesty is a fantasy real-time strategy game. You have just been crowned King of Ardania, the land is in chaos, its peoples divided. You must unite your people and claim the land!

At first, it may look like another Age of Empires clone with its different buildings and units, but the game plays somewhat differently. Units are not directly controllable. They have their own wills and do whatever they want to do. As sovereign, you can invest incentives (i.e. gold) to heroes which may encourage them to complete tasks you assign. You can indirectly control them by setting gathering points to various spots on the map. Units then try to reach these points and will automatically choose the right action to do at this spot once they're there, e.g. fighting monsters, harvest food or mine resources.
